How to Remove Acrylic Water From a Vase

Save

Flower-arrangers and centerpiece creators are enthralled with the new acrylic water material. Acrylic water looks like real water but is actually a solution that will solidify into a hard mass that still looks like real water. Before solidifying, silk flowers and other objects can be put into the acrylic water, creating beautiful decorations and projects that can be presented as gifts or used as centerpieces. Sometimes, expensive vases are used and the creator subsequently decides to reuse the vase. In that case, the acrylic "water" must be dissolved so that a new project can begin.

Things You'll Need

  • Acetone
  • Fill the vase with acetone (the acrylic water will be filling up about half of the vase, so there should be enough acetone to completely fill the rest of the vase).

  • Allow the vase to sit for a few days.

  • Spill out the acetone along with the acrylic water that has been dissolved.

  • Repeat the process several times until all of the acrylic has been removed from the vase.

Tips & Warnings

  • When dumping the acetone with the acrylic water, don't put it into the sink. The acrylic water may reharden and clog your pipes. Dump it outside in an area where nothing is expected to grow.
